      How many nights for Cahors?

      Cahors Oct 29, 2015 at 9:12 AM

      On our slow journey from Collonges la Rouge, we're considering a stop in Cahors. We've looked it up and it sounds great, but when people are doing write ups of their own town they always make it sound great. So this question is for those of you who've been there--is it worth two or three days?

    • Restaurants for New Year's Eve in PARIS?

      Paris 6 hours ago

      Hello! Me and my husband will be traveling to Paris for the New Year's. I've read a lot of reviews, advice and articles about choosing the right restaurant for the New Year's Eve — and I'm a little afraid to rely on some paid commercial articles offering Top-10 restaurants... The thing is that we do not want an overpriced, super-famous, crowded place. We don't even want any show, no Moulin Rouge or other type of cabaret. We'd love spending this evening in a very cosy, traditional French restaurant. Candles, small, good food, good wine, may be jazz/live music but not like a concert. Budget is around 80 EUR per person. Might be slightly more. I'd very much appreciate your advice.

      Carte Vitale question / Strasbourg / Alsace

      France Yesterday

      Have tumor(?) issues. Have no Carte Vitale due error of German DAK. Spent countless time to get all the paperwork, only their (DAK) EU form whatever-number is missing, asked already twice: "we will send you it within 10 days".

      The "10 days" passed at least 5 times.

      Still, no EU-form-whatever (and thus no Carte Vitale). In the mean time the doctors in Karlsruhe and Budapest want me to see a surgeon "sure is sure, you probably do not have a cancer - but ethically we may not tell you anything else, just see a surgeon"

      It's not a pleasure to see a surgeon - but:

      1) How should I proceed with French authorities? The doctors want it to be done soon (even that I recall the tumor or what-not) being there for good number of years (if not for most of my life, but not 100% sure)

      2) Any decent oncologist / urologist in Strasbourg?

      3) How the French system works anyway? (Have no idea, except that I need that Carte Vitale what somehow I can't get even that I have a suitcase of papers - one from DAK is missing and they keep screwing it up)

      Sorry, it's not about the travel - I am just kind of busy with all traveling, working, IT stuff, family and other things, have no time for crap like dying or so, neither mood, just in case... would appreciate some help. Thanks.

      I'm planing an overnight trip to Mont Saint Micheal on 23rd to 24th October 14. My plan is to get the 7.00 am train from Montparnasse station and then catch a bus from Rennes to Mont Saint. I will stay one night there in the hotel close to MSM (Au Berg De La Baie). The next monring I will go back to Rennes and spend a half day there before going back to Paris. My questions are :

      - Do I have to go back to the bus stop at Mont Saint Michael again to catch the bus to Rennes? Are there any other bus stops?
      - How can I know the time table of the bus ?
      - For Rennes sight seeing. Do you think 2-3 hrs is enough ? (I plan to catch 16.00 train from Rennes to Paris.)
